Review: Brides & Brothers by Anneka R. Walker

This was a fun retelling of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. I haven’t seen the musical since I was a child, yet from what I remember of it, the author was able to pull together a good contemporary take on the story. Of course, you will need to just relax and suspend reality a little bit and have fun reading this tale of a new bride surrounded by a houseful of grown men, the brothers of her groom.

I really liked that Camille and Aiden fell in love. Yes, it was fast. But it was real and not simply a marriage of convenience. I enjoyed seeing them the first month of their marriage, as they acclimated to being husband and wife with a houseful of men around. I think Camille did a great job of being kind and caring to Aiden’s brothers. Yes, she came up with a matchmaking scheme to hopefully move the men into the next stage of their lives with the aim of the brothers moving out of their house to start their own lives, but it was all done in a loving manner.

Aiden and Camille had some trials to overcome and Aiden had to learn how to prioritize his wife’s needs above his brothers’ needs. There were growing pains, a time they had to be apart for Aiden’s work, and enough angst to make their reunion worthwhile. I enjoyed this fun story.

A modern retelling of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.

Camille Kelly is in real danger of becoming an old maid—at least by Cherish, Montana, standards. She has all but given up on finding Mr. Right—until her broken laptop leads her to Aiden Peterson, a tall, dark, and handsome computer genius. Camille would never have believed her magic moment was right around the corner, but after two whirlwind weeks, she has a ring on her finger and has happily ever after in sight. However, she soon discovers Aiden is part of a daunting package deal . . .

As the eldest of seven brothers, Aiden has never had a problem living under the same roof as his rambunctious siblings. When he falls for Camille, he is confident she’ll fit right into his family’s already bursting home. He thought wrong. Aiden and Camille’s storybook romance comes to a screeching halt when she discovers her new living situation. Not willing to submit to a life mothering a bunch of grown men, Camille has only one option: she embarks on a campaign to improve her new brothers-in-law and marry them off. And what better candidates for wives than her own best friends?
